I wish they made those bars in chrome - I'd probably get some.

Looks great btw.

I bought the same bars in 12" the bars look good, the only problem that was bothering me are those plastic plugs, and the Avon grips I bought are not fitting at all the normal 1" grips, the TBW side when you put the grip on no rotation what so ever, and the clutch side does not want to go on.

Did you have that problem at all?

I am just trying to see if the bars are a problem or the grips?
The TBW grip should move around free correct?

Bars look good Rob, I thought about going with those bars when I did mine but decided I wanted fatter bars so I went with wild1 outlawz...now I'm second guessing.
